This is a mod by Salinga that utilizes the force and knockback of weapons. The weapons cause no damage to the players but their effect is just as damaging. The motive is the use your gun to knock a nother player into the sky which is like falling of a ledge and dying. Same effect if your knocked off a ledge. It is hard to play with bots since they are so accurate and move around randomly. An interesting mod to play. I recomend a DL.

                                                (__| THE MODIFICATION |__)

     The idea for this mod came from Marv "Bytrix32" Caine. He wanted
     an additional mode for my IN2TAGIB, in which a player is only pushed
     away by a shot.
     I took his idea and made a complete modification of its own. B-)
     I just wanted some more weapons for it - not just the compression
     What I got is a simple fun mod! You enter a map and you can only win
     by staying alive as good as possible by not to be pushed into lava
     or the sky by the other players shots! So be carefull where you stand
     or jump - someone could hit you by a compression rifle shot and
     push you right out of the area... life's gone! ;-)
     If you're fast you first push someone in the air with the help of 
     the Photonburst or some grenades, just to switch to the Compression 
     Rifle and give him a sniper ride to nowhere's land! B-)
     The winner is who got the least times killed. The game is over if
     if someone has hit the fraglimit by his own frag times.
     CTF is supported, so be ready for a jumpy and bumpy ride to get the 
     flag captures! B-)     
     And: If you feel that the pushes are not heavy enough, you can
     change the mass of the players by setting the variable 
     to another value than 1.0. To find out more about this one, read the
     var section of this readme below.
                                                    __                 __
                                                   (__| CHANGED STUFF |__)
     - The only weapons allowed are: Compression Rifle, Grenade Launcher
       and Photonburst. All three weapons are given by default.
     - Power of these weapons is changed for better gameplay. All
       values can be altered by variables.
     - Only the ammo for the allowed weapons is spawned in a map. 
       Ammo of the other weapons is converted.
     - Holdables are: Detpack and Teleporter.
     - Powerups are: Haste, Invisible and Jetpack.
     - No damage is taken by getting a hit. You are only pushed away.
       You can only be killed by telefrag, crushing, falling, being in
       lava or touching a hurting trigger - AND:
     - Touching the sky is a frag! So be aware not to be pushed into
       the sky of a map!
     - Because of this scoring system since the first frag no one
       can join a running game until it's over. I'll see if I change
       this by doing another scoring system...
     - Modes Assimilation, Specialities and Action Hero are disabled.
       You get an error message if you try to open a server running
       one of these gamemodes. Elimination and Disintegration are
       fully supported! The same goes for TDM and CTF!
     - Fraglimit means: The game is over when someone got that times
       killed. You get no point by killing someone.
     - Votable/Setable mass value of players by variable "mod_massmulti".

                                                (__| SERVER VARIABLES |__)

     I added the g_speed variable to the votable variables.

          - Cfg-Var: mod_massmulti
            Default: "1.0"
            Voting: Yes
            Multiplicator for the mass of the players. 
            To get the players less heavier, use a value like 0.7
            (70% of their usual mass value). Now pushes are more 
            To get them more heavier, use a value above 1.0 - like
            1.5 - now players are 50% heavier than usual. Now it's
            more difficult to push someone.

          - Cfg-Vars for weapon damage and projectile explosion power
            Voting: No
            List of variables and their default values:

     * Run this modification on a unpure server. Its serverside only
       and by this clients don't have to download the mod to play it
       on your server - but only if clients have their Autodownload 
       option off (via menu or "/set cl_allowdownload 0").

     * First of all: You need the installed Patch 1.20 or the Expansion
       Pack. This won't work with EF 0.28, EF 1.10!
     * Extract the ZIP-File contents into your Elite-Force root directory - 
       like "C:\STVOY", NOT the baseef-Folder!

       After that you should have a folder named "pinball" and a batch 
       file named RUNPINBALL.BAT.

     * There are three ways to run this modification:
       1. Start Elite Force Holomatch as usual and activate the modification
          in the MOD list.
          The entry is called "PiNBALL vn.n.n" where n.n.n is
          the actual version installed.
       2. Run Elite Force Holomatch from the command prompt by typing:
          "stvoyhm +set fs_game pinball"
       3. ...or just by the installed batch file:
